Gyroscopic house




Luz Marina and Gladys live

in Enmanuel, a neighborhood

in precarious conditions from Barquisimeto, Venezuela. The land

on which their small house is located,

is 1.80 meters over the level 

of the street, which added

to the precarious context and

Luz Marina's senior motor skills,

make it difficult for her to access

her home.


The Gyroscopic House seeks

to generate solutions to Luz Marina's difficulties, among other things.

A house developed under social

housing parameters, in which

the spaces are extremely reduced.

The design team focuses their exploration in the spatial

comfort that can match these parameters. The enclosure

and partition walls typologies

are the result of a spatial analysis

that seeks to play in favor

of the small dimensions.
